Hi all,
Has anybody tried running one of these from Autometer?

Do you think it could work? I have offset gauge cluster not central.

You might want to ask around some of the Instrument companies first on that one Chris.

 

Nothing wrong per se with the Speedo here, but it might cost more than what it cost to purchase to have it calibrated to suit the Mini or for a calibration gearbox. Eg, here in Aust, the Instrument guys charge around $300 - $500 for this service, it's very specialised and labour intensive.

 

If I can suggest, it's cheaper (and better) to go for an electronic speedo - eg;-

and get a suitable sender, eg;-

 

https://www.carbuild...rter-black-plug

 

and adapter for a Mini;-

 

https://www.carbuild...or-adapter-mini

 

then you can calibrate it exactly and limitless number of times, say you change wheels or final drive, then it's easy and fast to sort it again and get it spot on for no cost, only a few minutes of your time.

 

They are easy to fit up.
